North West’s quality education provision to be promoted in the US

first_imgWorking to enhance and further develop the strong educational links between the North West region and the US is a key objective of the joint cross border trade mission that is travelling to Boston and Philadelphia next week.The trade mission, led by Donegal County Council and Derry City and Strabane District Councils, will include third level and further education and training providers and development organisations including Ulster University, Letterkenny Institute of Technology, the North West Regional College, Donegal Education and Training Board (ETB) and Catalyst Inc.The trade and investment mission will run from 11 to 15 November. It will build on the strong political, economic and cultural linkages already established in Boston and Philadelphia with the North West City region and will be an opportunity to further reach out to the Irish diaspora. The educational representatives participating in the visit will not only be showcasing the area’s highly educated and skilled population but they will be working to further enhance the links already made with education providers in the US to develop apprenticeship and workforce development programmes.Paul Hannigan, President of the Letterkenny Institute of Technology (LYIT) says LYIT currently has students from Lasell College in Boston attending LYIT and that engagement is ongoing with Becker College with two students from LYIT taking part in the MassDiGI summer innovation programme during the summer to develop a new computer game publication. The college’s School of Engineering also has a contract with Olin College and strong links developed with LYIT and UU with the Worcester State University.He says linkages with the US are a key part in promoting the North West region.“The visit is about selling the region in its entirety and promoting all the positive attributes that we have in terms of our location, our education system and our talented pool of skilled young people to potential investors. By working collectively, all of the education providers in the North West are working together to highlight our academic excellence and top class learning environment that will in turn help to promote the region as an attractive investment proposition for global companies. “LYIT has been involved in a number of these trade missions with Donegal County Council for some time and we are really seeing the benefits of the engagement and the benefits of working with our partners at Ulster University, Donegal ETB and the North West Regional College on a united front.”Dr Malachy Ó Néill, Provost of Ulster University’s Magee campus said the collaborative approach to promoting the educational offering is key to building strong links that will benefit local people and the economy. “The trade mission in collaboration with North West partners LYIT and NWRC provides a unique opportunity to promote the education provision across the region and the quality of the talent pool, which we know is a key deciding factor for prospective investors. It will further strengthen Ulster University’s teaching and research links in Boston and will encourage future collaboration and mobility opportunities in Philadelphia for our students and staff.”Donegal ETBAnne McHugh, Chief Executive of Donegal ETB, noted that like her colleagues, Donegal ETB is also delighted to have the opportunity to participate in November’s trade mission to build links that will support the development of the county and the further development of this border region.“This is a fantastic opportunity to work alongside our Cross-border Further and Higher Education Alliance colleagues to promote the economic development of the region through showcasing our excellent education and training provision.“As one of the largest education and training providers in the region, and the largest in Co Donegal, we want to highlight what Donegal ETB has to offer in terms of further education and training (FET) provision that can support potential investment. We have strong links with a number of American multi-nationals based in Co Donegal and have considerable experience of working closely with them to develop bespoke training to meet their workforce needs and that of the future workforce in the county and region.” She said that Donegal ETB is also the leading provider in the Republic of Ireland’s FET sector in a number of skill areas, highlighting the example of the skill area of welding and engineering operations – Donegal ETB has staff who are WorldSkills experts in this area and the ETB was the first in the country’s FET sector to incorporate augmented reality welding into their training provision, highlighting the cutting edge learning conditions available.Leo Murphy, NWRC Principal and Chief Executive, speaking ahead of the visit explained how last year North West Regional College (NWRC) signed two Memorandums of Understanding in the United States, signalling its commitment to international co-operation with other education partners.He said: “We are delighted that the manager of NWRC’s Product Design Centre, Philip Devlin, will join this trade mission where he will showcase the services offered by our Business Support Centre and innovation centres, as well as sharing best practice.“Phillip is also looking forward to learning about new developments in Philadelphia where the Pennovation Centre has been leading the way in innovation. Having the capacity to see and understand how this centre works will only enhance the knowledge that can be applied to NWRC’s Product Design Centre (PDC). “The signing of the MoUs with the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development and the Community College of Philadelphia was a feature in 2018.“The College is very much looking forward to developing networking opportunities, particularly in the areas of innovation around the Philadelphia and Pennsylvania areas.”During the visit the education partners will attend a series of meetings and official engagements including the official launch of the Harvard GSD Visit Atlas for a City Region project.The education members of the delegation will also participate in the Golden Bridges Conference.The US trade mission takes place from 11-15 November and is funded by The Executive Office and the Irish Government.For more information on the trade mission visit www.irelandNW.com and follow the hashtag #IrelandNW19.North West’s quality education provision to be promoted in the US was last modified: November 7th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Gov’t Lowers Debt Servicing Costs

first_imgThe Government’s sustained efforts at debt reduction are bearing fruit, with the lowering of debt servicing costs by 30.9 per cent this year, from $325.9 billion to $225.2 billion. This major reduction has also narrowed the debt as a percentage of the budget from 54 per cent to 43 per cent. “It is this reduction in the debt servicing costs that has enabled us, even in this difficult year, to allocate badly needed financial resources to social services, and for the protection of the poor and most vulnerable in our society,” said Minister of Finance and Planning, Dr. the Hon. Peter Phillips. The Finance Minister was opening the 2013/14 Budget Debate in the House of Representatives on Thursday, April 18, under the theme, ‘Restoring Hope-Expanding Opportunity’. Dr. Phillips said reducing the country’s debt will boost activities in areas critical to nation’s development. “The need to repay the debt diverts money away from the necessary investments in development. Last fiscal year, debt servicing amounted to $325.9 billion or 54 per cent of the budget. This was, by far, the largest allocation in the budget and it diverted resources from critical sectors such as health, education, road infrastructure, etcetera,” he stated. He noted further that having a high debt burden reduces a country’s ability to access international capital markets at reasonable rates. “In the same way that a banker only lends to those assessed with having the ability to repay, similarly a country, which seems unlikely to be able to repay, will not get access to loans… Highly indebted countries are not only denied access to international capital markets, but to local capital markets as well, unless they are willing to pay exorbitant rates of interest,” he noted. Dr. Phillips noted further that reducing the burden of the public debt is vital “if we are going to enable future generations to realise their dreams and aspirations and to fulfill the vision of the founding fathers and mothers”. “Unless we do this we will have forfeited the dreams of past and future generations,” he added.

Banff grapples with unique challenges before cannabis legalization

first_imgBANFF, Alta. – The Town of Banff is grappling with unique challenges before this year’s legalization of recreational pot.With a reputation as a place to get a “Rocky Mountain high” and with a large international tourist base, the small mountain town is already on the radar for retailers.“We are unique in terms of our fixed land base and very limited amount of commercial space, and the fact that we have very unique town purposes as a national park community — to serve as a visitor service centre … and provide a range of services for those people,” said Randall McKay, Banff’s director of planning and development.Officials expect to craft rules about where pot could legally be consumed within the townsite and where cannabis-based businesses could be located.McKay said it will be up to town council to decide whether to allow the new businesses, but added there’s already a lot interest from retailers who would like to set up shop.If council allows it, he said, it will be a delicate balance to ensure the town’s small retail district doesn’t become a “green mile” with cannabis stores.“My initial thought is there needs to be some type of separation and process for deciding where these types of stores should be located,” he said. “We certainly know there’s going to be market demand, or all the evidence points to that.”McKay said Banff could look at a different approach than the one it uses for regulating liquor stores. There are 12 storefronts in the four-square-kilometre retail district.In addition to deciding where cannabis retailers will be allowed to open and where it will be OK to use it, officials are also working to establish definitions for storefronts and related businesses.Those details are expected in the coming weeks. A bylaw is expected to be in place before the federal government legalizes cannabis this summer.Any changes to the town’s bylaws need to be approved by Parks Canada.— By Colette Derworiz in Edmonton.

Spaces that weave memories

first_imgUnravelling the fascinating bond that exists between people, places and memories, ‘The Festival of Places’ is a unique event which aims to highlight the rich cultural legacy of places that exist in Indian cities, towns and villages. It explores the invaluable cultural fabric and a memory associated with places and provides an opportunity for people to share their personal narratives. The festival is also about understanding the idea of ‘Space as a Place’; about exploring ‘Places’ that form an integral part of cities and towns; about experiencing ‘places as vital and meaningful connected spaces’ through which urban life throbs; and rediscovering the lost art of creating vibrant places that nurture culture and creativity. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfThe Festival conceptualised by CATTS, a not-for-profit organisation working in the area of heritage conservation and management, has been envisaged as a convergence of people from all walks of life and disciplines who seek a deeper understanding of Indian culture through the places we live in as well as share an eagerness to rejuvenate them. The festival encourages participation of people of all ages and experience for developing an in-depth understanding of the places and spaces we live in, seeking people to play an active role both in the creation of new places and the preservation and sustenance of existing ones.
